Four students from the Media and Communications program at DelVal were recognized by the Pennsylvania News Media Association for their written and visual work published in The Full360, the university’s student media organization.

These outstanding student journalists will be honored with plaques or certificates later this month at the Keystone Student Media Awards ceremony, which will take place in Harrisburg, on Wednesday, April 26, 2023.

Maria Viola, Sabrina Workman, Kayla Leary and Marley Bramsway were recognized for their media creations. The English Department’s student creator community has grown and now publishes news and community features on the DelVal Full360. 

Writers, photographers, social media creators, videographers and graphics artists work as a team to write, capture and create student-centered media. For more information on joining student media as a contributor or student in the Digital Web Production class, please email
